Gibbs Racing seeking season's first win at Pocono

He was a reporter for Fox during the Xfinity race and was stationed in victory lane. "I grew up watching my dad (Dave Blaney) race on this race track, and it's so cool to get the Wood Brothers in Victory Lane, number one, and to do it here at a race track that is really close to OH - a home to me - is pretty awesome".

Wood Brothers Racing had been winless since Trevor Bayne's victory in the 2011 Daytona 500.

Erik Jones placed third, Kurt Busch came in fourth and Brad Keselowski finished fifth.

"We were having all kinds of power steering issues and I think we only made a total of four laps (in practice) and none of them were very good", Truex said.

Busch will go for his first checkered flag with a backup crew. Kyle Busch led for 100 laps, and appeared to have the fastest auto most of the day as he had in qualifying, but couldn't finish it off.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said his team deserved their point but admitted there was work to be done going forward. Cedric's goal looked to have been the breakthrough Portugal needed, but Mexico did not cave in.

With 20 laps remaining in the race, No. 5 Kasey Kahne got into the wall which brought out the second caution of the race. Jones led 16 laps in the stage and once he pit, he handed the lead back over to Busch. But this was the predicament Blaney, Bullins, and Wood Brothers Racing found themselves in after about 40 laps during Sunday's Monster Energy Cup Series race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

The final caution came when Takuma Sato, driving the same auto he won the Indianapolis 500 in two weeks ago and pushing for another, got his left side slightly into the grass on the front stretch, with five laps to go.

"I think it exceeds the dream a little bit", said Blaney, a third-generation racer. He was super-fast.

"I just love getting up close and personal with the drivers. It was really cool".

"Hopefully, RP likes it", Wallace said. Kyle Larson was in second place with 536 points and Harvick was in third with 429 points.

We were convinced Martin Truex Jr.'s Pocono 400 day was done when he qualified second only to have to go all the way to the rear for an engine change.

Ryan Blaney will remember this NASCAR weekend for a long time, as he won the Pocono 400 the day after helping FOX to broadcast the Xfinity Series race. Then the team would make the appropriate adjustments during a pit stop.

That left Busch vulnerable, and he was quickly passed by Blaney and ultimately Harvick, who set out to run down Blaney. Harvick cut into the deficit, though, over the course of the remainder of the first stage, closing to within two seconds by lap 50.

Vettel completed the 4.361-kilometer (2.71-mile) circuit in 1 minute, 12.572 seconds, about three-tenths of a second faster than his teammate. He fainted after the race on pit road and was taken to the infield medical center where he was examined and released. He held off two experienced drivers, Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch, to earn a spot in victory lane.

Jamie McMurray was also unable to finish the race after his auto caught on fire and he was forced to evacuate it near the infield. First, the team scaled back to a part-time effort where it selected a handful of races to contest based on tracks that best played to its strengths. "I didn't have everything lined up, and thought I had the right mindset going into it".
